I’ve run into this situation many times before. Sometimes, all of a sudden, removal begins. I used to think it was caused by the unique-attachments plugin. This plugin renames attachments, making their names unique. A hash function (MD5) is used to generate the filename, so the filename is indeed unique.
But you can see from the video that all plugins are now turned off.
Before that there was another problem, which I was able to solve thanks to the help of @WhiteNoise - Obsidian Sync. There's something strange in it or it's a bug
, maybe again the problem in the VeraCrypt, that I use.
Maybe somehow the file names affect this deletion? I don’t know what to think.
I restarted obsidian several times, tried to unmount and mount the container of VeraCrypt for the Vault. Nothing - file deletion continues.
Steps to reproduce
Last night I completely synchronized my home computer - everything worked, there were no problems. Came to work and wanted to continue working, but instead - started this spontaneous deletion of attached files. I have already got used to look at the synchronization log every time, because this self-deletion of files from time to time occurs to my vault for unknown reasons.
Here’s the 27 sec video:
Nothing should happen. The vault should remain unchanged.
Spontaneous deletion of attached files
- Operating system: Win 10
- Obsidian version: v0.12.4
Frankly, I am very tired of it, because manually have to restore HUNDREDS of files, because several times I did not make a backup. I’ve been transferring my database from OneNote for a few months now. It’s crazy.
Please help me solve this problem!
Thank you very much in advance for your help!
